Cecilia's story

Cecilia is a 60-year-old married woman who lives with her beautiful family in the neighborhood community of Nahualate. In order to generate income for her family to prosper, Cecilia buys and sells traditional clothing of the region. She has been operating her business for 10 years and it is located at a municipal market in her community. To improving her earnings, she also cultivates and sells corn.

It is very important to Cecilia and her husband that they improve the condition of their house. For this reason, they believe it is necessary to do some construction to expand their house. Cecilia is requesting a loan so that she can invest in the purchase of materials such as cement, lime, sand, and gravel. Her greatest wish is to have a more comfortable home for her family.
